Beautiful Hot Air Balloon

Good evening folks, just a small post for you today to show one of the shape cards that are available over on
If you have the time please go and take a look at the rest of the teams shape cards, they are all pretty amazing.  
The set I'm using today is one of the new ones called
and come with quite a few sentiments as well.  You could also use these templates as toppers for your cards if you didn't want to use it as a card. 

Aren't these papers just divine? and are a new stack from My Mines Eye. You know the type of papers I mean... I ones you look at and stroke but never want to use, well this is one of those paper
The heart I cut using my cricut and that old faithful cartridge George and shapes.  Using distress inks and Rock Candy crackle paint to create a vintage look. 

The flowers I have used an old flower punch, the flowers are just the right size for small projects like this.  I then went over them with an embossing tool to curl the edges and added a bit of crackle paint to give them a glossy look.  I pearls stems are gorgeous and come in a big bundle from Wild Orchid 

These gorgeous butterflies are punched from a Martha Stewart punch and is one of my most used punch.  I have also added crackle paint to use to make them a bit more robust and shinny.  The sentiment is one that comes with the set along with a few others.  

The scalloped circle are metal die frames from an American company called Cherry Lynn and are absolutely fabulous dies to work with.  They come in large and small packs I got mine from Sweet stamps over in the States..

Thanks for looking today and whatever you are doing this evening remember...

Keeeppp Crafting....
